    Well, if Cashman is taking applications, I'd like the job myself.

    Former Yankees legend Drew Henson is apparently still alive, having taken snaps yesterday, and fumbling on two consecutive plays.

    [Ramiro] Mendoza, 36, inked a Minor League contract with Milwaukee that included an invitation to big league Spring Training camp. He has not appeared in the Majors since he pitched one game for the Yankees in 2005 following shoulder surgery, but he's a veteran of 342 big league games and owns a 4.30 ERA. He is on Panama's preliminary roster for the upcoming World Baseball Classic.
    Good luck to "El Brujo". I hope he can make it back to the big leagues. He was always a favorite of mine, and an integral part of the most recent dynasty teams. I'll never forget his "icewater in his veins" performance in the '99 LCS against the Red Sox.

    Ditto. Good luck to Ramiro.

    Matt DeSalvo is now in the Mets organization.

    Edit: Tampa Bay signed Morgan Ensberg to a minor league contract.

    Stanton's Juices Are Flowing Again

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/baseb...-cub20.article

    MESA, Ariz. -- The worst five days of Mike Stanton's baseball career started and ended in a Houston hospital less than 11 months ago.

    It's where he spent the final days with his younger brother, who died of cirrhosis. In between, he returned to Sarasota, Fla., only to be released by the Cincinnati Reds.

    'That makes for a tough run,'' he said, ''a tough few days.''

    An emotionally wrenching, inglorious end to an All-Star pitching career that included 20 World Series appearances for the Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees.

    Except that Stanton, 41, said that wasn't the end.
    Make no mistake, he said, this is no spring fling. He plans to make this team and return to the big leagues this season -- regardless of how the bullpen numbers might stack against him -- if only to go out on his own terms.

    ''That has something to do with it,'' he said. ''But is that the reason I'm back? No. The reason I'm back is because I love to play. I love to compete. And there's no doubt in my mind I can still do this.''

    If they ask who was our star, give them twenty five names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Not an actual former yankee, but apparently someone is out there impersonating Andy Phillips, and getting him into some sordid affairs. Note that the link is more or less safe for work, but one of the main players in the story is an adult film star, and the title of the page mentions her line of work.

    PHOENIX -- Carl Pavano talks about his body like it's a separate person -- and not a person he gets along with.
    "When you're dealing with a body that has always given up on you," Pavano said, "it's tough to stay on top of your game."

    But Pavano currently has nothing but good things to say about his body and his game. He made his Cactus League debut with the Indians against the A's at Phoenix Municipal Stadium on Saturday and worked two perfect innings, getting five ground-ball outs.
    Of course.

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/transactions/...r=2009&month=2 says the Mets signed Ron Villone to a minor league contract and invited him to Spring Training. Villone was the only Yankee pitcher to allow a hit against the Mets on June 30, 2006 and he got the win in that game.

    Have Glove, Will Travel For Stanton

    http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...tnerId=rss_chc

    MESA, Ariz. -- Do you keep a list of the Major League ballparks you've been to? Do you plan trips to add new stadiums to the group? How many have you been to? Five? 10? Mike Stanton most likely has you beat. He's pitched in 43, and that's not counting a couple exhibition games in Mexico.
    So, what are Stanton's favorites?
    What about New York vs. New York? Stanton has played for both the Yankees (1997-2002, '05) and Mets (2003-04).

    "My first time in Yankee Stadium was actually as a Red Sox so that was a tough place to play," Stanton said. "It was an old school baseball stadium, the way it's formed, and when I first got on the mound, it was real different. All the other stadiums were cookie cutter stadiums from the '70s, all round. Yankee Stadium was different. Was it in '98 when they re-did Yankee Stadium and they took four feet off the mound so it was really domed. They had to do that for drainage. It gave a real weird feeling to it."

    And Shea?

    "The two years I was there, we [stunk]," he said. "People ask me all the time, 'What's your favorite team?' and that's not a fair question. We won three championships in a row. Shea was OK. Not the best part of town.”

    "If there was one team that needed a new stadium," he said, "it was the Mets."

    Not performance related but definitely a former Yankee :

    UPDATE, 2:11 p.m.: Mike Mussina is here. He’s on vacation with his family.
    UPDATE, 3:00 p.m.: It was good to see the Moose. He’s here for a week with his wife and kids, spending time out of the Pennsylvania cold. He has no regrets whatsoever. “When I saw the weight room I knew I was retired,” he said.

    Looks like ex-Yankee Chris Britton isn't making the Padres' pen:

    The Padres crave hard-throwing bullpen arms, and Britton fits their previous mold of soft-tossers with good control.
